mail server question

Link to this post 21 Oct 11

I've been setting up an email server for test purposes. It's running on Centos6. It's using postfix for smtp and dovecot for the mailbox server. I have tried to set up an email account using Thunderbird trying several accounts (root and my normal user account) but I keep getting invalid username/password. I'll post configs if needed.

When I try to connect via telnet I get "Connection closed by foreign host."

Can you tell us step by step how the mail server was setup? Are you using email accounts or your system login account?
